protest in libya that resulted into the deaths of a u.s. ambassador and three others. u.s. officials are still trying to determine if the libya attack was complex and preplanned or spontaneous. a senior u.s. senator says there's no doubt in his mind. >> most people don't bring rocket-propelled grenades and heavy weapons to a demonstration. that was an act of terror. >> susan rice, the u.s. ambassador to the united nations told reporters she believes a rocket attack in benghazi was a spur of the moment act, carried out by extremisextremists. >>> explosions shook the suburbs of damascus today. opposition groups report that 167 people were killed across the country. >>> three straight days, three separate deadly attacks on nato forcesn afghanistan, not by obvious taliban fighters or al qaeda but by infiltrators acting alone or in groups often wearing the uniform of nato's allies. here's cnn's anna coren in kabul. >> reporter: it's been a deadly weekend here in afghanistan, two more green-on-blue attacks, having afghan soldiers turning on the coalition forces training them. early sunday
libya and tunisia and egypt, relatively moderate governments, are under attack by much more extremist forces. the film is a pretext for those attacks. the united states, obviously, in their political spectrum attacks on the united states, they say are necessarily. of course we as americans can never justify terrorism. and i think it's important to remember what hillary clinton said last week, that terrorism can never be justified for any reason. so we've got to start, i think, arguing back in these arab countries that there is no reason whatsoever for these attacks and they should stoch and we've got to take security measures to protect our people. >> one of the things that has become a big issue is security. what about the security in benghazi? we know there were no marines in tripoli and certainly not in benghazi and questions were raised, here is victoria nuland former ambassador to nato and your former spokesman at the state department, she's had two of your jobs, i believe, in passing. this is her comment yesterday about embassy security. >> i think what we saw last week was that

on the consulate and what took place in libya were the least of all the riots and conflagration that took place around the muslim world, the least associated with that video. most of the violence that took place was instigated by rival organizations who were fighting for turf in the -- in eastern libya. and what happened today is that earlier today is that some of the people in those areas have rebelled against those terrorists and have cleaned out their headquarters. assaulted them and burned them down. this is an ongoing revolution inside libya. >> colonel jake jack objects, thanks. good to see -- jack jacobs. thanks. good to see you. >>> new numbers showing the economy has bottomed out. there nowhere to go but up? >>> plus, chris matthews on bill mahr on the definition of success in mitt romney's eyes.
